  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    Started the other day filled up gas then took off from gas station immediately get a red light. After stopping for the light after a few seconds it acts like it’s gonna stall. Up and down idle. When I take off it’s ok when I get onto a 55 mph zone I speed up engine shakes and revs real high...

    So my recent purchase has a few issues. Its a 2012 LT RS with 100k on it. I rebuilt the car from a crash.( Just body fixes) But the onboard instant mpg and mph reading isnt showing anything? It should change right? Its got a 0 with a line through it for both spots? Could this be a combo of bad...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I have a 2012 cruz LT RS with 100,191k and among its issues it?s not reading the instant number for mpg or mph. The rpm and mph gauges work though so I?m confused guys?

    Had been hearing a slight thumping noise at 30 mph, was on my radar, I figured it out it was a tire going down, thought I had enough time to get to my preferred tire dealer for repair, DIC said it had 30 pounds of air, heard a POP noise then a 5 to 0 countdown for low tire pressure. Gm roadside...

    Anyone know what that noise is that happens at 12 mph after startup? It almost sounds like it's coming from the front end. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    BNR customer Andrew from WI took his Cruze to the track a couple weeks ago, car has BNR downpipe, AEM intake, and a mild BNR 93 Octane tune (21psi max boost). Went [email protected] That's flying for a Cruze, faster than a lot of Sonics, which weigh a lot less. Thought I'd share with those that aren't...
  7. Gen2 Service Issues
    I’ve felt a shake in that 30mph to 40mph range since I got the car. The dealer did a number of repairs and it was still there. Three separate techs drove the car and agreed with me that it shakes left to right. The cart actually shakes, not the wheel where normal steering and suspension issues...

    I purchased my 2014 Cruze diesel a year ago with 28K miles on it in southern California where I live. Its been running really well and I've been a happy camper (other than finding out that the car MPH gets reduced when it needs more DEF!) A few weeks ago the CEL came on and its staying on now...

    I have a 2015 Cruze LTZ. I have had it for approximately 9 mos. the other day it started making this loud annoying high pitched whistling noise on the interstate. Never heard it before. It sounds like it is coming from the front of the car, maybe around the dash. Air is getting in somewhere...

    I haven't posted 0-60 MPH runs for a while now, but thought I might get back to it. Been working on a new format. This Cruze vs Civic head-to-head clip is the first shot at it. I'm itching to test a manual. It's a hoot once it's in the boost.
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    A couple weeks ago my car developed a whine that sounds like a power steering pump low on fluid. It is not rpm base but speed based. I'm reading a lot about transmission bearing failures. My car has 25k on it. It is not related to what gear it is in or in gear at all. Does this sound like the...

    So this morning I saw, for the second time in 76,000+ miles the "dreaded" speedometer sweep to 100 MPH. The tach didn't move nor did the engine speed change. Stopped on level ground at a stop light so the clutch was in and foot off the brake. I tapped the throttle and the speedometer...

  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Just drove on freeway 300 mile trip, half way here howling type (resonating) sound started. can quite figure out where it is coming from. annoying, but comes and goes, constant for a few minutes then stops, and comes back at slightly different pitches. below 60 mph does not make the sound...
  16. Fuel Economy
    I went up to the University of Wyoming for work today. I limited my speed to 65 MPH except for about a 15 mile stretch at 70 MPH (to avoid being a rolling road hazard in a 75 zone). Trip was an out and back using the absolutely stunning US-287 from Ft Collins, CO to Laramie, WY. I also...
  17. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    Had to take a drive to work on Sunday.. With the lighter traffic I decided to see what mileage would be at a higher speed than my normal speed.. Set the cruise to 67 mph and after 65 miles I was averaging 48.3 on the DIC.. very happy with that but I will be going back to my normal 62 mph on Monday
  18. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I don't know if its just me but when I get at a red light and start to slowly accelerate and get up to speed. I can feel my foot on the gas peddle shake a little bit, its only in that initial start. Its almost like the car is slightly rocking left to right but I don't know.

    I stumbled on this video of this guy doing 190mph in his corvette. He has a gopro recorder mounted to his trunk lid. A 1:50 is really interesting. You cant keep up with counting the lines in the highway, because hes going so fast lol. Heres the video. 190mph on the highway in a 1000HP...

    Ever wonder *why* the digital MPH (DIC) and analog MPH (speedo) numbers sometimes don't seem to agree? Quoted from Jan'14 GM TechLink website article: "The specification for speedometer needle accuracy is +/– 2 MPH at any given speed when looking straight at the needle."
